Composer: C. Jackson; L.L. Yates


She went west to be an actress back in nineteen-sixty-five
With the hopes and dreams of a girl turned twenty-one
Now she's waiting there 'round tables for the nickles and the dimes
While she's waiting on the break that never comes

Well that's a lonesome highway to the end of the rainbow
Paved with broken hearts of those who once believed
But I'm never gonna give up my dreams I follow
Through the storms of life round the curves entwined and weaved
Down the darkest roads wherever they may lead

Well he headed down to Nashville with a notebook full of rhymes
Down on music road he knocked on every door
But no one cared to listen so he works assembly line
And he feels there's no use trying anymore

Now he played in all the juke-joints from New York to LA
Then he hoped each one would be a stepping stone
To a life of adulation it grew harder every day
So he finally gave it up and just went home


from Rock in the Grass, released October 1, 2021
